Local Authority

Hobson Health has worked with local authority clients since our creation, and have an enviable and growing portfolio of sector customers.

We recognise that local authorities have a diverse range of employment opportunities and cover many sectors including care, call centre, environmental, engineering and facilities.

We recognise that even same sector employers have specific and widely differing requirements. One model does not fit all, and therefore we tailor services to each specific client. 

We advise customers on the occupational health interventions they should deliver on a legislative, and consider from a sector best practice, perspective and offer a full and complementary range of absence management and proactive health and wellbeing initiatives.

We recognise that our reports need to add value by containing progressive information for managers.

We are proud to have numerous long-standing LA contract customers, having successfully retendered to retain the contracts over the years.  This demonstrates our ability to adapt the service to reflect changing needs and to continuously add value to the sector.

Services delivered within the sector include:

  • Pre placement health declarations
  • Absence management services
  • Ill health retirement
  • Health screening – hearing, lung function, HAVS
  • Driver medicals – including HGV and LGV
  • Counselling
  • Mental health training
  • Physiotherapy
  • Health and wellbeing initiatives
  • Occupational health physician services to LAs with in-house nurse led teams

‘Hobson Health was recommended to us as a reliable and high quality provider of occupational health services.  We have used them increasingly over the last 2 years to supplement our own in-house team.  Their clinical employees are extremely approachable and capable, and the operations team back at their headquarters respond quickly to our requests – often thinking outside the box to provide us with cost effective solutions within an enviable short timescale.

Perhaps equally importantly our interactions with the team are enjoyable!  They get the mix of professionalism and personalised interactions just right.  I believe they genuinely care about us as a customer and the medical reports they provide to us add value to our business.’
